When it comes to compensation and in particular spreadsheets, it’s always good to start with a template

Over the course of working with 70+ organisations, I’ve built a number of templates. These are templates I’m proud of, wish I had early on in my career, and combined with the help guides, will save you a ton of time.

Some of these are free and some come with a price tag to reflect the amount of work and research that has gone into them. Enjoy!


These come with a small price tag to reflect the amount of work and research that has gone into them.

How do I download a file?
  • Free Templates
    • The free templates are hosted on Google Drive. Simply click on the link to the file, make a copy and it’s yours to own and modify.
  • Paid templates
    • You'll be able to download or access the model instantly after purchase. The template is in Google Sheets, fully open and unlocked for editing.
How do you process payments?
  • I use Gumroad to handle transactions and distribute the paid templates.
  • Orders normally ship immediately, if you do not receive the email with the template you’ve purchased, please check your spam folders. If for some reason you have not received your product, please let us know. Email us at: hello@justly.company
  • You'll get a payment receipt by email after purchase, and can create an invoice easily through the links in the receipt. That email will also include your unique download link; the files in Gumroad are active and continuously updated, and you can always download the most recent version of your model through that download link in your purchase receipt from Gumroad or by logging into your Gumroad account.  If you do not have an account, create one with the email used for purchase and you will be able to access the latest model version anytime.
  • All prices quoted are in British Pounds and are inclusive of tax (as applicable), except for VAT. VAT is charged applicable to your location and is additional to the listed price. To learn more about VAT, VAT refunds and how Gumroad charges this, then please read this I want a VAT refund.

We are under no obligation to provide the product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mispricing.
Your data on Gumroad
  • All transactions are processed through Gumroad, and no payment details are stored by us. All of your payment information is tokenized and encrypted in a PCI compliant ecosystem through Gumroad, and you can learn more what that means here. We also use Gumroad to send emails, including your receipts and invoices, and updates on your product. Gumroad stores our customer lists, and our records of who has downloaded or purchased which products. Any information Gumroad collects when you visit my site is not available to me, and you can contact Gumroad to view or delete any information that they have. You can contact me to request details of the information I have available to me about you on Gumroad, which is limited to the information you provided at download or purchase. You are not required to create an account to purchase.
What software should I use to run the spreadsheets?
  • For the spreadsheets, you should only use Google Sheets.
  • These spreadsheets will not work in Excel as certain features are not transferrable to i.e. GoogleFinance.
Can I edit the models?

Of course! All formulas, cells and sheets are completely open, so you can edit anything. As you are using google sheets you can always create multiple copies and play around and break things should you wish.

What is you refund policy?
  • I accept refunds on a case-by-case basis.
  • More than a hundred hours are spent on average for some the templates on offer here. It takes a lot of effort designing, developing, testing, documenting and publishing them. Maximum effort has been taken to ensure the accuracy of the templates.
